It wasn’t until in 2005 when the first season of The Ultimate Fighter reality show popularized the MMA and brought it into the mainstream.
Today, Jeremy Botter of Flosports.tv reported that the UFC has been sold for a whopping $4.2 billion by a group consisting of WME-IMG, the Dalian Wanda Group, The Kraft Group and Tencent Holdings.
